The chairman of Thailand’s TOT has said he will resign if the state-owned operator’s THB19 billion (US$630 million) 3G network plan is not in place by end of month. According to the Bangkok Post, TOT’s Areepong Bhoocha-oom, who is also the permanent secretary of the Thailand’s Finance Ministry, has said that bidding documents to build the network could be sold by next week so that the bid could be called by the end of the month and the contract with the winner signed in February. If this timetable is not met, he said he would “review” himself. In a controversial move, TOT is planning to license local MVNOs to use the network.
